Alastair Borthwick And His Career As A Radio Broadcaster

April 16, 2019 - Author: steph

Alastair Borthwick was born in Tyroon, Ayrshire and later moved on to Glasgow at a young age of eleven. After high school, he joined the Evening Times as a copy-taker and would later graduate to work for the Glasgow Weekly Herald. He had to work under a variety of departments as there was not enough workforce at that time. There were only five official employees by then. Through the newspaper open-air page, Alastair discovered mountaineering. He said it had turned to be a common thing for leisure for just about everyone in Scotland at that time as most of the people were jobless.

In the year 1935, he went to work for the Daily Mirror in London but left soon enough to running a press club and then later joined the BBC. He loved radio broadcasting and finally made a career out of it. During one of his interviews at the BBC, the producers fell in love with his story and immediately created a 15-minutes talk on the radio, and that was simply Alastair Borthwick’s take off point for his radio broadcasting career. From the previous experience in mountaineering, he talked much about it in his shows and enjoyed lots of compliments and appreciations in his presentations. He stood out as a good speaker, and this earned him more admiration from his producers on the radio. Unlike many other radio presenters, Alastair Borthwick never focused much of his attention on becoming a radio superstar or making a fortune from it and proud. He kept it on the low and as modest, friendly and formal as possible. To him, this was the best he would want from his job, and it was because of this, he broadcasted from the year 1935 to 1995.

Amongst other things Alastair did was running the press club in the year 1938 for their Empire Exhibition. He was supposed to do is a performance from the top of the tower hosting the exhibition during a rainstorm. He was supposed to do all this wearing just a top hat and morning coat. Work for him became even more exciting during the Second World War where Alastair got to see too much action than he would have wished to see.
